Congratulations to Maine’s 2017 Best Bagger Champion!

September 27th, Auburn, ME –  MGFPA in partnership with the Good Shepherd Food Bank, hosted Maine’s Fourth Annual Best Bagger Championship to honor our state’s “best” grocery checkout bagger. Bagging is a critically important step for many grocery stores as it is the last impression of the store’s attention to detail, emphasizes the employee and store’s dedication to exceptional customer service and helps ensure customers’ food gets home in perfect condition.

Congratulations to our Champion Best Bagger, Alexzandria “Alex” Matos of Shaw’s in Scarborough!

Placing 2nd: Sheila Small of Shaw’s Supermarkets in Auburn and Placing 3rd: Megan Diket of Shaw’s Supermarkets in Augusta.

Alex has won an expense paid trip to Las Vegas to compete at the National Championship, held at the National Grocer Association Show, February 11 – 14, 2018. There she will compete for a grand prize of $10,000. Prizes will also be awarded to second and third place contestants! Good luck, Alex!
